Ketil Bjørnstad / Frode Rønli “The 30 Year War”

The album will celebrate 40 years anniversary in 2021. Maijazz with premiere of concert version of the legendary album on June 8, 2021


The 30-year war “live” with Ketil Bjørnstad and Frode Rønli with band.

The Thirty Years’ War is a double album by Ketil Bjørnstad and the Stavanger Ensemble which was released in October 1981. The project was intended to be a rock opera. It was about being born in the 1950s, growing up in the 1960s and growing up in the 1970s. The album was a collaboration between Ketil Bjørnstad (lyrics and music) and the Stavanger Ensemble with Anders Bru, Frode Rønli, Øystein Eldøy and Knut Køningsberg, then Norway’s hottest band. Frode “Froddien” Rønli was also a strong contributor with ideas for Bjørnstad’s texts.

The result was a legendary double album. The rock opera never came to be something special. But now key figures in Stavanger have persuaded both Ketil Bjørnstad and Frode Rønli – for the first time – to make a concert version of the Thirty Years’ War. And the premiere will be at Mai: jazz!
